Welcome to the SMF. Plenty of great ideas, help, and fun on this forum. That is a very nice looking smoker you've got there, seems as if you may have a flare for working with metal. Good Luck on you ventures.
Hey SK, I gotta ask-who did you find with the BIG BRASS ONES to cut that tank for you? I have a chance to pick up one of those 250 gal. propane tanks, but I'm not quite ready to meet my Maker yet if'n you know what I mean!!
for those of you who must cut a tank that once held flammables,you can purge the tank w/ nitrogen or argon gas-neither are flammable & thats what we do when tig welding stainless or "hot" pipe in refineries.
